1 With 5 kids and countless illness between them, I will still never get used to them being sick. 2 I’ll be always grateful a fever is not vomit cuz that crap is way worse. 3 The old school bath […]

My Mediocre Attempt at a Pinterest Recipe

I hate making dinner. I don’t particularly like cooking anyway, but dinner especially is the all-time worst. I’d seriously rather just clean toilets. You spend an hour or two on meal prep, 15 minutes eating the dang thing, and then […]
